There have been plenty of leaks and rumors in the past week or two surrounding Samsung’s Galaxy S5 Active, the successor to last year’s Galaxy S4 Active. While the need of that device could be easily argued, it’s almost definitely coming, and coming soon. But like it’s less active brother, the S5 Active is coming with a friend, the Samsung Gear Active.
Pictured above, this device appears to be a ruggedized version of the current Gear 2 Neo since it lacks a camera. Even though both Gear models are already waterproof, it seems like this model could take quite a bit more abuse than the standard models. The source for this leak, TK Tech News, claims that this device would launch alongside the upcoming Galaxy S5 Active. While we don’t doubt this device is coming, it does worry us that the screenshot does not show up to date software seen on newer Gear models.
Update: The Gear Active has not launched with the Galaxy S5 Active which has just launched.
